KISS Guild Winter Wonderland Quilt Show
This past Tuesday, my KISS quilt guild held their Christmas Holiday party & combined it with a Winter Wonderland Quilt Show. It was not open to the public & was just a gathering of the member's Christmas/Winter quilted items.
We meet monthly, in the basement of a local church & received permission from them to use pews upstairs as our quilt "racks".
A big "Thank You!" goes out to Norma H. & her team of elves, who set up the quilts, both the day before as well as on the actual day of the party. Lots of work but it was SEW worth it to get to see all these wonderful quilted treasures.
My friend, Robin & I were in charge of the party downstairs, where we had tables set up for 100 people,
with cute Mason jar centerpieces holding Fat Quarters Flowers of pretty red & green fabric.
Each jar, filled with peppermints, had a festive holiday lid attached to the side as well as a darling cork snowman, fastened with raffia. Thank you, Robin, for all your help with this party!
The decorated jars were all different & were awarded as door prizes at the end of the meal.
Since we meet at 10 am, members brought breakfast casseroles, fresh fruit salads along with muffins & quick breads to share.
We used the Perfect Potluck site to coordinate the food contributions, which were abundant & DELICIOUS, too!
Each place setting had a sugar cookie in the center, as a favor.
We tucked them into CD sleeves with clear cellophane windows & then sealed them with a winter snowflake sticker.
Not my usual elaborate placesetting type of tablescape but festive no less!
Let's go back upstairs to enjoy more photos of the quilt show!!
They were displayed all over the church...some on pews, some on the organ seat...
some on the steps.
Some even up in the sanctuary!
I think they were running out of room!
Did you recognize any of mine??
I see a little elf, working in the back doorway...
Hi Cathy P.!!
I hope you enjoyed the show. Thanks for stopping by The Gazebo House today.
I'll be in the kitchen, still baking up a storm,
as there are only 4 more days till Christmas! If you're in the neighborhood, stop by for some cookies & a cuppa tea.
